Yesterday, cybersecurity provider Radware, announced that Ukraine’s State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection (SSSCIP) is using Radware’s Cloud DDoS Protection and Cloud Web Application Firewall (WAF) service to protect itself amid the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war.

When it comes to defending against advanced attacks, Gazelle highlights that protection solutions must go beyond traditional rate-limiting and negative-based security models, and instead use machine learning to automatically detect and mitigate complex attacks in real-time. 

“This is especially important today with the talent shortage in cyber security that organizations worldwide are facing. Organizations cannot rel …
